This guide is based on one I previously created for Yosemite on this board and video card. This board is one that I originally installed OS 10.6.3 Snow Leopard on and has remained very stable and usable with the prior OS installs.
The things that I have tested and are working are:
I successfully installed El Capitan on my PC using Clover.
My system specs are:
Intel Core i5-3570K
ASUS STRIX GTX 970 4GB
When running Cinebench R15 and benchmarking my CPU, I get an appropriate score but when it comes to benchmarking my GPU (GTX 970) the...
Hello fellow Hackers.
I'm looking into buying a video card for my Skylake box. I've looked at both the Evga, windforce and the Strix 970 4gb, since these seem to run well with OS X. £260 - £290 where I live. Today however, I was walking through a computer shop and saw a Gainward Phantom 970...
This is my first attempt with Hackintosh so I am hoping to get some help from some of the more experienced users on here.
I have installed Mavericks with Clover and it is sort of working but I am having problems with my graphics.
Even after installing the NVIDIA web drivers, I can only get into...
This is my first time making a hackintosh. I was able to successfully install OSX El Capitan 10.11.5, but am having some issues. First, my graphics card doesn't seem to be working. Everything displays, but it is just very glitchy (lines when logging in, etc.). Also, I don't have any audio...
I already built an hackintosh with Haswell CPU and Gigabyte Motherboard. I'm not a gamer and I use the hackintosh for work. I'd like to buy a NVidia GTX 970 for graphic and design development such as Photoshop and Illustrator.
The "Buyer's Guide" suggests only EVGA and Gigabyte GPUs. I...
So let me preface this by saying that I believed I was having the same black screen boot problems others have been, and have just been incredibly unlucky in finding a solution. That may still be the case, but I've been troubleshooting and I think I might have a different problem that just seems...
I recently bought a used HP Z620 because my iMac couldn't cope with all the Simulations I threw at him and I also needed a rendering beast.
Here are the specs:
HP Z Workstation
2x XEON E5-2670
Gainward Phantom GTX 970
Anyway.. I miss OS X and all it's glory so I was...
Hello! I'm having some issues with my build's system definition.
A week ago, a upgraded my gpu to a MSI GTX 970. Since this change, I'm having trouble booting. It almost never boots at once. It reboots and then perhaps it boots. Here is my build:
I am running yosemite 10.10.5, with an i7...
GTX 970 Asus Strix
16Gb DDR3 RAM
1TB Hard Drive
ASUS Z97-A Motherboard
I was able to successfully install Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.3 on my PC. My issue occurred when I attempted to install the Nvidia Web Drivers. While I was able to install the drivers, upon...
I am trying to set up my first costume Mac. I followed the installation guide for El Capitan (10.11.3). I used MultiBeast (8.1) for post installation and installed the latest NVIDIA Webdriver (for 10.11.3). After rebooting the display resolution switched to the correct format and all the...
My GTX 970 has been giving me issues since I first set up this Hackintosh. If I try to boot without nv_disable=1, the signal to the monitor disappears 50-60% through the boot (with either HDMI or DVI). When I do get it to boot with nv_disable=1, the system information of course says "NVIDIA Chip...
I installed MAC OS X El Capitan 10.10.2(15C50) and it worked with no problems(except for audio and graphics) till I installed Nvidia's web drivers, So this is what happens:
It boots and the system works but the monitor shows me "No Signal" with a black screen, I have tried to...
I'm building a new rig, I have all of the parts except the GPU which I am trying to decide between the ASUS R9 390 and the EVGA GTX 970. I'm really wanting to go R9 because of the larger 8GB frame buffer which seems more suitable for 4k but I've seen a lot of people having problems with those...
i installed El Capitan with Clover and almost everything works fine.
I use a Gigabyte Gtx 970 and connect it with Displayport ->mini Displayport. If i Boot the system, the monitor get no Signal and i have to unplug and plug the cable. Than it works.
If i use HDMI it works...
I just installed Yosemite 10.10.1 using Hackintosh. The flags I use to boot are
IGPEnabler=Yes nv_disable=1 npci=0x2000
I also installed NVidia's web driver, but my GTX 970 is still unrecognized.
Nothing else has been installed. I also cannot find my motherboard name on DSDT generator.
So I had a successful download of El Capitan but my graphics card is not at full QE/CI and I have no idea how to accelerate it. Also in the about this mac section my graphics is shown like this `Asus GeForce GTX 970 0 MB` how can I make it show all the VRAM that my gpu has?
I have downloaded...

I finally got my installation of El Capitan (10.11.2) working, using Clover to install and boot. The thing is, if I remove nv_disable=1 from the boot options I can't boot at all. Everything is updated and I have WebDriver 346.03.04 installed. nvda_drv=1 is also enabled in the boot...
